Frequently asked questions
How can I customise my private forum?
Our technology gives you the flexibility to design and structure your private forum in a way that works for you. You can choose from a list of features and menu items. You can also apply your own branding, logos, and colours for a fully customisable community experience. Building a private forum, has never been easier.
How can I make money with my private forum?
We have a range of flexible monetisation features for you to choose from. One option is our subscription model; your members will pay a monthly or annual fee to be part of your community. Or, you can set your community up as a paid download from app stores. That means you set the price and your members pay a one-off fee to download and join your community space. Our community software comes with in-app purchases and freemium functionality, meaning you can put a paywall in front of any exclusive content or areas of your community platform. You can also use any combination of these monetisation options to make money in the ways that work for you and your forum.
What is the price?
Creating a secure private forum, works for communities of all shapes and sizes and we're currently powering communities of 100 people and communities of 1 million people alike. Every community is unique and we want to make sure you’re not paying for features and hosting capacity that you don’t need. We’ll give you a personalised price based on your community size and feature requirements. After you complete the contact form below, you’ll have a chance to book a call with one of our Community Specialists to get your exact quote.
Will my community move with me to my new private forum?
Migrating your community to your secure private forum, may sound like a challenge. But here at Disciple, we help communities of all sizes migrate from social media, websites and mailing lists into their own, dedicated and highly interactive community spaces. We’ve got plenty of resources, best practices and guides to help make sure your community moves with you when you’re ready to go.
